Hammers fight to prove point

West Ham United 1 Leicester City 1

By Staff Reporter

West Ham manager David Moyes registered his first point and also revived some hope in the stands during a 1-1 draw with Leicester last night.

The Hammers started brightly, but any optimism was dashed inside 10 minutes when some poor defending allowed Marc Albrighton to move into the box and latch on to Jamie Vardy's cross to tuck home.

However, as the half went on the hosts began to build a shred of confidence and they were rewarded on the cusp of half time.

Moyes needed a little luck for his first goal at London Stadium, with Cheikhou Kouyate's header from a corner finding its way into the back of the net off the back of Danny Simpson.

The goal saved what could have been a soul destroying first-half for the Hammers, and they came out after the interval with an energy not seen for a long time in east London.

Their efforts, though, didn't bring the elusive winner.

However, Moyes will have plenty to be happy about from their second half showing last night.

Having found the side in the state it was in after Slaven Bilic's departure, the Scotsman will surely know this is going to be a slow process.
